Default Did someone put turbo pistons in my n/t???

The machineist was thinking because of the deep dish in my pistons that someone may have swapped out n/a pistons for turbo ones and that was one reason why i wasnt getting any power. Is this possible? I dont have any good pics of my pistons do you guys have a pic of both? Thanks in advance!

I think that means you need to add a turbo.

Look at the pics in the other thread with the blown headgasket. Do they look like that?

You may find these useful links, but bear in mind these may be different to the stock Toyota ones. 7M-GE and 7M-GTE I think I may have a GTE Piston in my garage left over from a rebuild. I will post a picture as soon as I can find it.

Dude it's n/a. Not n/t.
natural aspiration, naturally aspirated, whichever.

Photo of 7M-GTE piston, I didnít have time to clean off the carbon but I think you can see itís the same as the one in 7M-GTE link. So I think it would be safe to assume the photo of the 7M-GE piston in this link 7M-GE should fairly accurate.
